A windows hosts file can greatly improve your browsing experience. A very good host file will block almost all Ads, often better than an ad-blocker. With the big benefit that no website will ask you to disable your ad-blocker.

I use this hosts file. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to any way to just download it. I have to cut and paste into notepad. This updates at least once a month and blocks all the nasties.

Using a Raspberry Pi, "Pi-Hole" can protect all the systems on your network by refusing to return a DNS reply for bad sites.

There is a menu on the right side of that page (as shown on whichever user agent my broweser might currently say it is anyway) ...in that meu is a link to a text version of the file. Right click and 'save link as' will download the file as text rather than html

Writing as an often-guilty off-topicer, can someone put a block on all these posts about browser security? Or rather move them, as they are interesting, but not very funny  :down:
